MCC women blow big lead, fall to Shreveport


MERIDIAN — Shreveport    78

Meridian men    57

    The Jaguars held MCC scoreless for nearly the first four minutes Wednesday, building up a 6-0 lead and cruised from there.

    Shreveport gradually pulled away from the Eagles, who fell to 0-19 and 0-2 in conference, in the first half in leading 42-34 at intermission. MCC did make a run early in the second half after the Jaguars went up 50-29 on a Donald Francis 3-pointer at the 16:23 mark.

    Limiting Shreveport to just one bucket over the next five minutes, MCC closed within 52-38 as Nick Waters, a former Meridian High standout, started the run with a bucket. TJ Jones, who led the Eagles with 22, then scored four straight before Kenny Davis hit a free throw and a bucket.

    However, Shreveport answered right back, scoring eight straight including back-to-back 3-pointers. The Jaguars were led by A'Torri Shine with 18, Francis with 17 and Joseph James with 15.

    Waters finished with 10 points and five rebounds for MCC and Corey Brister also added 10 points to complement Jones, who scored the first 10 points of the game for the Eagles.
